Fulltone Standard Line '70 BC-108C | Fuzz

FuzzFace Style w/Matched BC108C Silicon Transistors

Vintage Fuzz Face pedals are a favourite of many artists from the '60s, '70s and beyond, used most notably by one James Marshall Jimi Hendrix to get a staggering array of clean and bombastic sounds, all depending on where the guitar's volume knob was set. There were basically two versions of the Fuzz Face: the earlier Arbiter (with Germanium NKT275 transistors) and the later Dallas Arbiter (with silicon BC183L and BC108-C transistors). The nastier, more distorted, BC108-C Fuzz Face came out around 1970, and it inspired both the circuit and the name of this Fulltone 70 pedal.

Description

In his twenties, Michael Fuller spent much of his time scouring the country finding old vintage effects that nobody seemed to want. Many of them were broken, some sounded like God and some sounded not-so-good. Not believing people would pay $1000 for an original Fuzzface when the sound consistency was so hit-or-miss, he started learning exactly what made the occasional one magical. This eventually led to the birth of Fulltone: vintage style tones with more flexibility, more reliability, better quality, true-bypass switching w/ LED status, a DC power outlet and a price that was as much as 1/10th that of the original.

The 70 pedal was the 3rd or 4th release from Fulltone. Debuting in 1994, it was the quintessential version of a 1970-1973 silicon transistor vintage Fuzz Face. The 70 sold around 4400 units during the next 15 years, using various transistors including BC183L, ECG199, 2SC828, and (Michael's favourite) the BC108-C.

At some point early along the way he added the Mid knob which allowed a silicon Fuzz Face-style pedal to cut through the mix, along with the internal Bias trimmer to allow the user to get softer or harder-edged tones. Having discovered a huge stash of his favourite Silicon transistors for this circuit, the BC-108C, the 70 is re-introduced in a smaller enclosure, with Fulltone's proprietary "anti-pop" quiet switching circuit, better power supply filtering for less noise,and polarity protection to keep you from frying the Transistors.

Let the '70 push you into some new musical direction with the magic of fuzz!
